Libyan HoR Speaker gave Egypt green light to bomb Derna
The Speaker of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HoR) had given the green light to Egypt to launch air raids on Derna in eastern Libya in response to a deadly attack on Coptic Christians, a source close to the Tobruk-based HoR told The New Arab.
The source told the New Arab on Thursday that Aqiulah Saleh, gave Egyptian authorities permission to strike Derna Shura Council camps in Derna and its suburbs.
Egyptian warplanes raided last Friday Derna city on what it said locations for Derna Shura Council, and they are believed to have raided Hun town on Sunday as well, before Egypt had conducted second time airstrikes on Derna last Monday.
